I love books. That's simple enough. I've read a couple of good ones in the last month. Well, just this month. The one that I finished today was the Life of Pi. It was really good, and not what I expected at all. It was an excellent book, and I would recomend reading it. It's a Canadian book (the author lives in Montreal) and won a bunch of awards. It's a really fresh look at things. I am not sure if it really is a story, or if it is actually true. And I am not sure that I want to know either. It's something that I will have to think about for a while.
I bought a book at I already have, at least in draft form, today. It's something that I have been meaning to buy for a while, if just to review things that I have been taught over and over. It's my SEG 2100 text book by tcl. What I find most amusing is that Rohit, one of the people who kept on helping the prof write revisions, gave the book 5 stars. Right, I am sure that has nothing to do with the fact that he spent a lot of time working with the book and trying to help make it better. It just made me laugh when I saw that. ;-)
The other book that I have read that was pretty good was The Snow Walker by Farley Mowat. It was all about the people of the north, and their stories. I feel that he was recording them on paper because they are an oral tradition, and that is being lost with "modern life", and pretty soon they will be lost. It's quite sad thinking of how a whole way of life will come to an end, but I am sure that it's not the first, and probably not the last. Who knows. As an amusing side note, check out the price on this book. Seesh. That's one to get when you have free shipping.
